Well couldn't sleep tonight, and got into watching a bunch of Giants highlights for the SuperBowl run...
I got to say, one of the greatest postseason runs of all time. 2 td's vs Atlanta, both excellent plays especially the catch and run. and it wasn't isolated to those two plays. He was a beast the entire game.
2 td's vs GB and somehow he topped the Atlanta performance. The catch and run TD was simply amazing, if there was a word more endearing than that, that'd be the word I;d use to describe it. we may have to create a whole new word to describe his play that day. the hail mary grab, again, worthy of creating new words to describe it. Plus, like Atlanta, his performance wasn't restricted to those two plays, he was a beast all game.
Vs SF, he had a pretty good game, but you could tell SF was going absolutely out of their way to contain him, and he also was playing hurt.
But the SB performance could have been the best game of the entire run. Granted he didn't have any touchdowns, but NE was double teaming him the entire game with the safeties rolled over to him, and he still had 10 catches for over 110 yards. HUGE, clutch 3rd down grabs. was dominant the entire game. he made some amazing acrobatic grabs, and had only one minor setback when he put the ball on the carpet but it was recovered so didn't hurt us.
i cannot think of a WR having a better postseason. And i'm not thinking from a homer viewpoint, i'm trying to be objective. Nicks just matter of factually, honestly had the greatest playoff run of any WR in the history of the game...anyone think of a wr who somehow did better?
